Re: kerf issue?

That makes sense, thank you. I will widen the gap, and move the start point. If I can cut say one inch of the outer circle have it turn into the center and do that next it can then exit and finish the outer circle.
I am making flighting.

kerf issue?

I am trying to cut what looks like a donut that has been sliced once. The slice is very thin, only to break the circle. In sheetcam I can import the svg and the picture looks correct. However it chooses to design the cut as two separate circles and does not cut the slice. How can I overcome this? I ...

Re: Horizontal plate lifting clamp

I have not built my lift yet. When I do I will be back for the files. THank you so much, I was wondering how I was going to create those.
These look perfect, I will scale them down a bit as I only cut up to 1/4 inch.

Re: Over Head Crane ideas

My table is 4 x 4 and I never cut anything larger than 1/4 so far. If I can find the right little winch I am going to mount garage door track on the ceiling and use rollerblade wheels to support the cross beam.

We have a raceway near town that has a motocross track. This might be a hit. Will make a couple in vinyl as well.

Re: New plasma table arrived

Uzaree or anyone else with a laser... I have a diy plasma water table, the water catches the heat/smoke after the flame cuts the metal. The flame is really quite short. On a laser system what catches the light? This may be a dumb question but does the light beam not stay coherent? On a downdraft tab...

Re: Pancake punch

I did build it finally. I did use two separate drawings and cuttings. I am punching quarter inch ABS plastic, it works well enough though it rolls the first 1/32 of an inch on the top. If I decide to improve it I think i will use a milling machine or lathe.

Pancake punch

Has anyone ever cut a pancake punch? My question is about kerf, how much is too much? I have about 1.5mm kerf from my torch. I suspect that tolerances are related to what you are cutting.

If anyone has tried this I would be interested in hearing about it.

Re: Need some education.

No clue why I could not use the files that you converted for me. I finally went back to the net and found a Welsh flag and scanned it in. Many of the lines were really thin and I thickened them up. The file would still be more appropriate for a laser. I will put it in the shared section. I think I w...
